My husband the Chef says 5 oz of starch (potatoes, rice, etc), 5 oz protein (meat, fish, etc), 3 oz vegetables, 3 oz fruit, 3 oz salad, and 1 piece of dessert per person. Hope this helps. You didn't mention if this was a buffet or a plated event.

Ms. spider's response sounds perfect, but if you'll be having a lot of teens, they might eat more meat (like one hot, one hamburger per) and drink a lot of soda if you provide it. They also eat more than 1 pp of dessert.

When I have a party, I ask ppl to rsvp, that way, I have an idea of how many ppl are coming and plan accordingly.

Serve as much food as you would serve you family.
Have plenty of food or don't give a party, there's nothing more embarrassing than to run out of food!
